The Beauty Of Night WrenchingS

Reflecting on the recent South Carolina round of the 24 Hours of LeMons, one of the best parts of the whole weekend was walking around the pits during the night break, when all the teams were wrenching away on their cars. It was a strangely beautiful mix of frantic frenzy and drunken stupor. The big American ex-cop cars were all replacing their brakes, the small high-strung foreign machines were all worried about their head gaskets, but everyone was still managing to thoroughly enjoy the agony. Per dollar, there just isn't any better way to soak in all the emotional and mechanical ups and downs of motor racing than participating in a LeMons race.
